So these two Pit Bulls and three blind cats became best friends… Actually, wait. This isn’t a joke. This is real life.
Faithful Friends rescuer Sherry Stewart of Hockessin, Delaware, recently took in three blind cats to foster, and her Pit Bulls immediately pitched in to help care for them, The News Journal reports.
All three cats — kittens Bruce and Willis and 7-year-old Helen — had to have both of their eyes removed for medical reasons. While some might see them as undesirable pets, Stewart could clearly see that all three have plenty of love to give.
“Most people would see them as not adoptable,” Stewart told the paper. “And they are.”
And just like the three blind cats, Stewart’s Pit Bulls, Alfie and Frankie, have had their struggles. Alfie, who is mainly gray, is a former victim of animal cruelty, but is now a therapy dog at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. Frankie, who is white, was suffering from mange and had pus-filled sores all over his head when he was adopted. Now he’s doing just fine as part of Stewart’s pack.
Frankie and Alfie clearly don’t let their previous obstacles get in the way of their ability to give and receive love, and they’re now showing the three blind cats how to thrive the same exact way. Frankie in particular has taken to snuggling with the foster felines and giving them sloppy kisses.
A potential adopter is interested in Helen. The kittens are expected to soon be up for adoption on Faithful Friends’ website.
